How to Take Care of Your Emotional Health During an Emergency Situation

Home Care in Madison CT

Home Care in Madison CTEmergencies by default don't usually give you much notice that they're coming, so it's important to have an idea how to handle your emotional well-being should an emergency crop up. These tips can help, but you may need to tailor them for your situation.
Express Your Feelings in a Healthy Way
It's tempting when you're in an emergency situation to try to tamp down your feelings and deal with them later. That can give you more stress while you're actually moving through the situation, though. Do your best to express what you're feeling as you're feeling it. You don't have to be strong for the other people in the situation with you. Once you express your feelings, you can release them and not have to worry about them later. Dealing with them at the time is less exhausting, too.
Lean on Your Support System
Whoever makes up your support system is there to support you, so use that. you may be in a situation where you're all each other's support, and that's still a good thing. If you need outside help as a part of your support system, such as hiring home care providers, don't hesitate to add members to your support team. The more the merrier, and it can mean the difference between getting through the emergency gracefully and floundering through it.
Try to Find a Way to Relax
Do what you can to relax as often as you can, even during an emergency situation. This might mean taking a walk on hospital grounds or it could mean taking a break to meditate for a few minutes. Whatever allows you to relax is something that you'll want to be able to take the time to do. If you're feeling overwhelmed, you are overdue for some relaxation time in whatever form is possible.
Practice Self-care as Close to Normally as Possible
Self-care means that you're eating foods that are nutritious as close to your regular mealtimes as possible. It also means that you're getting some exercise in and that you're sleeping as much as you need to in order to feel refreshed. During a stressful situation, self-care may also mean that you're delegating more tasks than you usually do, and that's okay.
Your emotions can take a beating during an emergency situation, but it doesn't
have to knock you out.

Welcome to SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven, CT. We are an agency that provides non-medical services such as companion care, homemaking, personal care , and respite care to individuals of all age groups. Our mission is to assist individuals to reach the maximum amount of independence they can achieve, and to improve the quality of life for those that are experiencing physical or mental disabilities. These disabilities may include, but are not limited to, stroke, Alzheimer's or other dementias, Parkinson’s disease, or cancer.

Hello, my name is Gordon Wall and I am the President and owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven, Ct. My wife and I have been in the medical field for 35 years as I am a Registered Pharmacist and my wife a Registered Nurse. Although SYNERGY HomeCare is a non-medical agency, together we have a long history of medical expertise that is beneficial in providing homecare services.

We understand the challenges, both physically and mentally, that are involved in caring for aging parents, as we have had our own personal experiences, and are aware of the demands it places on family members as they endeavor to maintain their own household/lives. We are very passionate about maintaining the integrity of the workers and the dignity of the clients. We strive to make aging and healing a beautiful part of life and realize the importance of staying in ones home to achieve this. Whatever age requires the service.....'There is no place like home'.

We specially train our caregivers/CNA's to meet the individualized needs per diagnosis. We instill in them the importance of treating each person with respect, compassion, and having empathy with their client. Each caregiver/CNA is CPR certified, they have evidence of negative TB testing, they are fully insured and a national criminal background check is performed. My wife works with each caregiver clinically before they are assigned to a client. Once assigned to a client, quality calls and visits are conducted to make sure the client/family is satisfied with the care they are receiving with their caregiver(s). There are times when a client is receiving medical care. We also can work side by side with a medical team in providing additional non-medical care.

As SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven our service area consists of New Haven, East Haven, Branford, North Branford, Guilford, Madison, Northford, Wallingford, and Durham. Our services are not limited to providing care only in one's home, but also to those individuals who require assistance in hospitals, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities.
